Great Places To Stay

Links of tried and tested hotels/apartments/rentals. There is no partnership between these places and The Three Under, just my own recommendation. If you’d like a review please see ‘Where We’ve Been’ and I link specific blog posts.



  • Hallstatt: House shared with owner. Sleeps 5 (private accommodations).
  • Kappl: House. We stopped here as the halfway point on a summer holiday- fantastic house, perfect for large groups. Bianca (the owner) is SO friendly and helpful. A perfect place to stay for a skiing or summer holiday for sure. Reasonable rates too vs. high season costs in most places.


  • Ghent: Family boutique hotel with large family-style room. Slept 5 of us comfortably and we loved the Irish pub in the middle courtyard.

Czech Republic


  • Billund: Legoland Hotel. Family room overlooking the park! Slept 5 comfortably (shared room with kids). Room 788 was great. Very clean, comfortable beds, quiet, fun with Legos already in the room to play with.


  • Rastila Camping Helsinki Clean campground for your camper. There are also wooden chalet/log cabins for rent which are adorable. Bathroom facilities were impeccable, and you’re literally a 5 minute walk to the metro and into civilization. It’s not a rustic camping experience but I have never had such an urban camping trip like this before.


  • Dordogne: Le Chevrefeuille self-catering apartments and rooms. Historic south-of-France building. Our self-catering apartment our second year slept 5, our first year we stayed in two adjoining rooms that would sleep 4 but can accommodate 5.
  • Paris: Airbnb apartment sleeps 6.



  • Halkidiki: Sani Club of Sani Resorts (STUNNING & for the whole family). Bungalow 417 & 418 was the perfect set-up for our family of 5.


  • Lucca: Hotel, and I stayed alone but the location and suite were fabulous and enough room for 4.
  • Domaso (Lake Como): Private apartment. We stayed in the ‘Nelly’ but this is the link to the entire site. Nelly will sleep 6.
  • Rome: Guest apartment via HouseTrip. Slept 5.
  • Tuscany: Montaione Borgo La Casaccia. Slept 5, Bolgheri apt, but I recommend one with a private garden if possible (book it quick!)


  • Texel: House in De Cocksdorp where we stayed with another family. Beautiful, clean, perfect location. HIGHLY recommended. Slept 8 comfortably. Crib avail in room. Trampoline and yard for the kids.
  • Heerlyck Oisterwijk cozy B&B apartment right in the center.


  • Lisbon’s Porto Santo Historical Hotel. We had the best time here! I went with a friend, but there were children staying as well. With a cannot-be-beat location, fabulous restaurant, nightly themed reception, and the MOST AWESOME STAFF EVER I can’t sing their praises enough.


  • Ibiza: THB Los Molinos (adults only). Must get a sea-view room (421 was great).


  • Alanya: Ola Club Paradiso (all inclusive family resort). Beautiful room with balcony and two bedrooms + living room. Food variety was great- pools and slides were awesome but SO COLD in October. Safe location- not really on the beach, but there’s a bus which goes to the hotel beach every 30 minutes or so. Slept 5.
